READ BEFORE WATCHING THE VIDEO The 3,150 mile long Lefortovo tunnel in Russia, (near Poland)is the longest in- city tunnel in all of Europe. It is nicknamed 'The Tunnel of Death.' See for yourself why... There is a river running over the tunnel and water leaks through in some areas.When the temperature reaches nearly 0°C like it does during the winter in Russia, the road freezes and becomes a sheet of black ice.The result is the attached video which was taken during a single daywith the tunnel surveillance camera. Congratulations to the dual-carriage bus driver --imagine the passengers in the back! What a ride!The next time you complain about traffic, remember this video... Yikes, Russian engineering! ... Or ... Perhaps it's the Vodka.
